“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars.” –Les Brown
“Whatever the mind of a man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”-- Napoleon Hill
All through civilization, those who have made the most difference are those who started as dreamers. They dreamed and acted on their dreams and the world has never been the same again. “The greatest achievement was at first, and for a time, a dream.” If you dream big, you achieve big. Many dreamed what may have been at the time taken as impossible dreams but with the help of man’s creative imagination, the impossible became the possible. The story is now being told all over the world how Henry Ford who was born in 1863 in a farm near Dearborn, Michigan, USA started the Ford Motor Company. He was a mechanic and dreamed of one day building a “horseless wagon” and mass-producing it. This appeared then to be an impossible dream because all forms of transportation were mostly by horse-drawn carriages. He followed up this dream by experimenting at his leisure hours. By 1893, he completed the construction of his first automobile. By 1903, Ford Motor Company was born and his dream of “belting-the-earth” with automobiles began. This led to the production of the popular Ford Model T. By 1927, about 15 million of the cars had been sold. The impossible had become the possible and Mr. Ford became very wealthy as a result. It is pertinent to mention that Mr. Ford had limited education, was of average intelligence and just as human as you and I.
Any successful venture began as an idea. Dreams metamorphose into ideas. It takes just one good idea followed by action to change your life forever. Just think about it. Is it money, power or happiness you want? Anything, all you need is to think about it. Put your mind to it and follow through with action. You can never miss the mark. We are what we think, period! A long time ago, my favorite poet Walter D. Wintle captured it all perfectly in the following verses.
“If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win but you think you can’t,
It is almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost.
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will—
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN.”
“One small step for man and one giant leap for mankind”, these were the words of Neil Armstrong an American astronaut and the first man to walk on the moon. This was in July 1969, a few years after President J. F. Kennedy who before his unfortunate assassination in 1963, sent notice to the world that America will put a man on the moon within 10 years. Today, man practically “lives” on the moon, thanks to the great American dream. You too can dream, act and be someone.
